David speaks with climber Jim Davidson about his new book The Ledge. In 1992, Davidson was descending Mt. Ranier when he and his partner fell 80 feet into an icy crevasse. After watching the death of his partner and suffering severe injuries of his own, Davidson found the strength to pull his way out of crevasse to safety. Aside from being a harrowing story, this book serves as a lesson to all that even the most impossible obstacles can be overcome.
